(Newser) – Ah, home sweet home. Or home sweet porn set, in the case of an Arizona couple who were in the process of buying a $1.8 million Paradise Valley luxury home when the listing agent happened to mention that the sellers were in the, er, entertainment industry. A little investigation showed that owners Kevin and Sandra Otterson have long run a website called Wifey's World, reports the Arizona Republic, and images from the site clearly are shot in rooms in the house.

"At that price point, I figured there might be some courtesy to the buyer," says would-be buyer Linda Fein, though the Republic notes that, along with things like homicides and suicides, porn shoots are on the list of things that homeowners aren't required to disclose. "I just can't make Thanksgiving dinner on counters where a porn star has been lounging around." She appears to have truly lost her appetite: She and her husband withdrew their offer. "I certainly believe there are people out there who wouldn't care about the house being used for those purposes," she adds. "I'm just not one of them."
